Course summary

The MA in Broadcast Journalism is an intensive one year course covering radio, television, mobile and digital journalism. We aim to prepare you for a career in a modern broadcast newsroom.

MA Broadcast Journalism is ideally suited for those who have decided to pursue a career in radio or television news and current affairs. Our aim is to help you to get your first job in a highly competitive industry.

We use digital TV and radio studios in our new Two Central Square home to teach you how to gather, prepare, produce and broadcast your content. We also organise a three-week industry placement for you to put into practice the skills we teach.*

We'll encourage you to originate and distribute your stories through the latest social channels. Are you comfortable using social media in a professional way? You will be by the time you leave us.

You’ll gain a broad set of digital production skills as your future employer will expect you to be multi-skilled, familiar with the latest technology and able to work independently.

We are looking for people who can demonstrate a keen interest in news. We expect you to be engaged with what’s happening in the world. If you regularly watch and listen to TV and radio news programmes, that’s a good starting point.

We also look for people who already have some evidence of their commitment to a career in journalism. This could be acquired through student journalism or work placements in a newsroom. We don’t mind what subject you have studied at undergraduate level.

You’ll leave us with an MA that is widely recognised as being at the forefront of postgraduate training for a broadcasting career in digital multi-media newsrooms. Your time with us will be hard work, but hopefully it will be rewarding, and the beginning of an exciting career.

*Placement opportunities may be disrupted due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
